Poor Romo; 506 yards through the air, and he still loses because of one pitch to the wrong guy.
It's Romo's specialty. Do well for a while and then choke in the end. The Cowboys need a relief QB for Romo who can play the last 5-10 minutes of the forth quarter.
A while back I read an analyis that had the boil off rate to determine the Delta T between the liquid and metal. It was not very hig, the metal temp was less than 220F at the interface, below caramelization temps.
Thanks for the info, Jeff. I can't imagine why it would be any different.
I will add this one data point to the discussion, though I imagine there were mitigating circumstances:
I accidentally pinned a cotton hop bag to the bottom of my kettle with the IC for the last 15 minutes of the boil. When I discovered this, after draining the wort into fermenters, the hop bag was black and charred through (there was actually a hole burned through the hop bag). It had carbonized while under 10 gallons of boiling wort. I"m pretty sure spontaneous combustion of cotton requires temps in excess of 400*. So at least locally, sandwiched between a stainless pot bottom and a copper coil with a 200k BTU (or whatever a bayou classic is) propane burner, you can achieve temps well above 212.
The wait for an ok to do a beer label is what caught my attention. I'm not convinced that we really need DC bureaucrats to survive that decision.
Only if the beer is going to cross state lines. Blame the founding fathers for that one.
